Charlottesville City Schools to Receive Less Federal Funding

Posted: Updated:

Charlottesville City Schools planned to ask council for help after being hit by sequestration cuts. Now that request has been taken off the table.

Schools expected to get nearly $1.5 million from federal Title One money. After sequestration, they are getting $140,000 less.

Juandiego Wade, chair of the school board, said the board approved a budget earlier this year that did not account for those funds. Wade says a $140,000 cut will not hurt Title One programs -- especially with such a large budget.

He says the division will still be able to provide a world class education to its students.
